The Assessment Transition Communications Toolkit
This toolkit is one of two developed by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) to help state and school districts communicate testing information before, during, and after the assessment window this spring. This toolkit is for states transitioning to a new assessment this year. (For states continuing with a second year of the same assessment, see the communications toolkit listed in the Related Resources below.) This toolkit includes key messages as well as sample FAQs, letters, postcards, PowerPoint presentations, and social media tips to use in communicating about the transition to a new test. CCSSO will add Spanish translations of these materials as soon as they are available.
